I had a BCC removed this past summer. It was the first one. What can I expect in the future? Do people usually get another one within so long?
My best advice to you is to continue follow-up check ups with your doctor, wear sunscreen, and avoid sun overexposure as much as possible. Self checks are also important. I am sharing a couple of links about self exams you might find useful.

Yes guys ... cancer is insanely scary. To be honest, when I found out about my terrible illness, I fell into a very deep depression. It seemed to me that the whole world around had stopped.
Thank you for sharing how this has made you feel. I understand and feel the same way at times. Talking about things has helped me deal with the fear of the unknown and the pain. Hope that you are doing well. Scott skincancer.net team member
